The Constitutional Monarchy of Verwood Island Archipelago is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Donovan Berkley with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.314 billion Verwood Island Archipelagoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Lauren. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verwood Island Archipelagoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,242 trillion Florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,974 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, and Verwood Island Archipelagoan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Verwood Island Archipelago's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verwood Island Archipelago is ranked 15,504th in the world and 20th in International Democratic Union for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.18 Workforce Participation Rate.
